Mark Boyle - Yes basically he blagged his way into a County deal with a fake back story, there a few eye catching parts of the story like he claimed his coach at Cambridge had said he was the best young player since John Crawley. It was a puzzling story because it was like Worcs hadn't checked with Lancs (who he had claimed to be at before). His last innings he was 10* and had to retire hurt. The What if still haunts me

Thanks - missed all that at the time

Do Middlesex go home for the weekend or just stay up north for the Lancs game?

In fairness he clearly wasn't a total joker, just a bit below county standard. Pretty sure he could play at a high level amateur side or minor counties, it was the lying that was the problem

Yaacov, they go to Headingley and plant strategic banana peels around the Yorkshire changing rooms.

probably no different to the CV's that cross my desk

There is something totally magnificent about Kumar

is jimmy playing for lancs?
by Yaacov9/9/2016 1:36:57 PM
Ooh that's quite good. (Or a run-out.)
by StaggerBreaths9/9/2016 1:37:33 PM
Dont think so
by Mark Boyle9/9/2016 1:37:33 PM
Jimmy isn't playing for the rest of the season; nor is big Stu. Middx. could conceivably have faced Broad, Anderson, and Root+Bairstow in their last three matches. Think about that and shiver with fear/unfulfilled delight.
by StaggerBreaths9/9/2016 1:38:31 PM
Is Foster retiring? because otherwise I don't see him playing

Goodbye Wheater. Thanks for your time. Was always going to be tough replacing Bates.
